Incels are constantly slanderedIt is not slander if it is true.
Maybe, there is the odd incel (note, though, that an incel is not simply an unhappily single male virgin!) who is not a hateful death cultist wishing death and suffering upon all “femoids” and “normies”. But it is a fact that extreme misogyny, dehumanisation, incredible spitefulness, glorification of mass murder, ultra-nihilism, abuse apologia, rape apologia, paedophilia, cultishness etc. are far from marginalised within the incel community. They are very much mainstream for the incel subculture.
You don’t need to go nut-picking to portray incels as horrible people - go to any incel forum and you are pretty much guaranteed to find at the very least four utterly vile titles - including at least one glorifying ”Saint” Elliot Rodger or deeming a tragedy befalling a woman ”LifeFuel” - and I am being generous by not counting slurs and dehumanising jargon like “cuck” or “femoid”. The actual post will often turn out to be even worse than the title suggested. The posters that make those posts are plentiful, many of them very prolific and active for a considerable time. And without exception, there will be responses that agree with those abhorrend opinions, often even taking them one step further into monstrosity, as well as people who disagree… because it is not screwed-up and evil enough for them. None of these are recent development, but have been true all the way back to Sluthate and r/incels.
We do not believe incels to be evil misogynistic psychopaths out of ignorance. To the contrary, we believe incels to be evil misogynistic psychopaths because we are monitoring the incel community, and psychopathy, misogyny and evilness - not just in individuals, but as core features of incel subculture - is exactly what we observe.
